World Cup 2006



World Cup 2006

Although there was much controversy over the Germany vote, Germany World Cup 2006 was a cracking tournament. There were a few shocks and upsets, namely Ghana reaching the last 16 and Spain going out fairly early in regular fashion. They may have had a shaky start, but Italy proved to be worthy winners, only conceding two goals throughout their campaign and picking up football's biggest trophy for the fourth time.

The final draw for FIFA World Cup 2006 took place in Leipzig on December 9th, with Jurgen Klinsmann's Germany and holders Brazil both drawing favourable first-round groups. Sven Goran Erikssonís England also didnít fare too badly, while France and Italy had some tough early games.

The World Cup 2006 final featured Italy and France and was held in the Olympic Stadium, Berlin on July 9. The match was played with the newly designed Golden Ball and was won by Italy on penalties. Roll on World Cop 2010!
